High Noon at Home Office - Free Gary Demo today

If you happen to be in Central London this lunchtime, and you support Asperger's sufferer Gary McKinnon's case not to be extradited to the US on computer hacking charges, you might like to support his family and friends as they gather at the Home Office between 12 noon and 2 pm to protest at the Government's failure to protect him from an unfair process.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg will be there lending his support as he's supported Gary's case from the start.

Gary's mother, Janis Sharp, has fought tirelessly for her son and deserves our support.

She wants those of us who live too far away from London to send a card to the Queen asking her to intervene with the Government on Gary's behalf on the basis that she effectively signed away UK citizens' rights on the advice of the Government. Obviously the Queen is never going to intervene publicly. However much the idea of Her Majesty nabbing Alan Johnson, Joanna Lumley style, at a public event appeals, it would be wrong for an unelected monarch to do so. She does, though, meet Gordon Brown once a week and if she gets a lot of cards, she might discuss it with him privately. Anyway, it can't do any harm.

I'm 500 miles away so I can't be there physically but will be in spirit.
